1Now it came to passe after þe death of Saul, when Dauid was returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites, and Dauid had abode two daies in Ziklag, 2It came euen to passe on the third day, that behold, a man came out of the campe from Saul, with his clothes rent, and earth vpon his head: and so it was when he came to Dauid, that hee fell to the earth, and did obeysance. 3And Dauid said vnto him, From whence commest thou? And he said vnto him, Out of the campe of Israel am I escaped.4And Dauid said vnto him, How went the matter? I pray thee, tell mee. And he answered, That the people are fled from the battell, and many of the people also are fallen and dead, and Saul and Ionathan his sonne are dead also. 5And Dauid said vnto the yong man that told him, How knowest thou that Saul and Ionathan his sonne be dead?
